The Council on Patient Safety in Women’s Health Care disseminates patient safety bundles and toolkits to help facilitate the standardization process. This toolkit reflects emerging clinical, scientific, and patient safety advances as of the date issued and is subject to change. The information should not be construed as dictating an exclusive course of treatment or procedure to be followed. Although the components of a particular toolkit may be adapted to local resources, standardization within an institution is strongly encouraged.
The Council on Patient Safety in Women’s Health Care is a broad consortium of organizations across the spectrum of women’s health for the promotion of safe health care for every woman.
